A Hindi remake of the Korean film A Hard Day will be directed and co-produced by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, popularly known as Raj & DK.

International production house Kross Pictures is collaborating with the director duo for the thriller. This is the banner's third venture in India after TE3N and the Hindi remake of Miracle In Cell No. 7, to be directed by Umesh Shukla.

A Hard Day debuted at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival in the Director's Fortnight segment. Thereafter, it went on to become one of the most acclaimed thrillers in recent times with box office collections of over Rs 150 crore.

Currently, the process of scripting the Hindi screenplay of A Hard Day is on and the makers will soon be announcing the star cast. The film is expected to go into production in 2018.

Thomas Kim, CEO, Kross Pictures says, "Our greatest commitment to our audience is to ensure quality and concept-driven content. Since 2015, we are steadily moving towards building a strong footprint in India, which is an important market for us. Raj & DK are known for their unique and quirky style of filmmaking, and in partnering with them, we believe we have found the right sensibilities and passion to remake this as a big entertainer for 2018."

Raj & DK said in a joint statement that the film is a "fast-paced thriller with unrelenting suspense and a great dose of humour. It will be a very interesting challenge to adapt this film into Hindi. We hope to bring a unique spin to this well-made thriller. We are excited to start our collaboration with Kross Pictures."
